BTKS Posted September 1, 2011 Share Posted September 1, 2011 Salvaged these hammer heads from a rust pile. The guy was litteraly and intentionally rusting piles of old metal and tools. According to him, they won't sell if they are not rusty! Several antique tools were completely ruined! Muratic acid and some wire brush time saved the heads. Some grinding brought the striking faces back okay. I still need to reshape the three pound cross peen. I have several more handles to make. Some even larger ball peen heads, I would guess up to 21/2 pounds. I made the handles from ash and treated with Linseed oil and of course rust and metal shavings.
